Facebook introduces voice posts, story archive options for users in India

Each pic will save to the Facebook cloud and users can choose to share them - or not - via the Facebook app.

Will your Facebook Story with Voice Posts use more data?

On Wednesday, it was reported by The Verge that Facebook is unveiling three new features that will appeal the general audience by giving them an option of "create and save memories".

Users can now save the photos and videos they capture from the Facebook camera.

First, users will be able to save photos and videos taken with the Facebook Camera on Facebook.

Another interesting feature coming to Facebook's platform is voice posts.

Born in 1945, of Dutch-Irish descent, he grew up in Pennsylvania and met Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, in the late 1970s. Meghan Markle's half-sister, Samantha Markle reportedly supported her father and blamed herself for all the staged photos.

The big new change for Stories will be the option to save photos and videos for later.

Though the waving of the phone could not be avoided, this new feature will certainly reduce the time of waiting before you can actually start to enjoy your meal.

Like the Facebook Camera feature, it saves your posts privately. "You will be asked if you want to archive your Stories, and you will need to tap "OK".

To save a photo or video, go to the Facebook Camera and then tap the Save button at the bottom. The length of the voice posts will be limited to 20 seconds and just like regular story posts, they will disappear after 24 hours. "The important thing that we've learnt from WhatsApp is that voice messaging is an increasingly popular way for people to communicate when they don't want to type up messages".

According to a report from TechCrunch, Facebook is adding several new features to its "Stories". Usually, Stories delete themselves after 24 hours, but you'll be able to prevent that from happening for the Stories you value most. This option will be available by using the app's built-in camera. Facebook has also provided a dedicated screen that will appear after the recording is stopped to let you pick a background colour, background photo, text, doodle, or a sticker - matching the theme of your Voice Posts.

Facebook hasn't released any user numbers for its Stories product, which launched in mid-2017, beyond saying that the figures are "encouraging". "You can still find it in your Stories Archive if you have Archive turned on", explains Hayes. Nevertheless, he said: "These are features that are rolling out first in India but eventually they will be broadly available".

"After a photo disappears from a story, you can still re-view it, re-live it and re-share it", Hayes said.
